Doc AND Ref Fined

I've never heard of a double fine… until now. Celtics coach Doc Rivers was fined $25,000 by the NBA today for publicly criticizing referee Bill Kennedy after a loss to Chicago last Tuesday. The penalty was determined by Stu Jackson. Referee Billy Kennedy was also fined an undisclosed amount for his conduct with Rivers at... [More]

Moore Work To Do

I'm going to try real hard not to get on a guy who has been thrust into more minutes than anyone would have liked… in a new system that's hard to pick up… without the best defender on the team to help him out. BUT… Mikki Moore has got to play smarter. I'm willing to... [More]

How Could I Overlook Rondo?

There's no doubt Paul Pierce was the hero of last night's win over the Heat. He's "a killer," according to Stephon Marbury. But what about Rondo? 47 minutes, 27 pts, 11-20 FG, 3 reb, 10 assists, 2 TO A point guard committing two turnovers in 47 minutes is absurd. And with Ray out of the... [More]

Leon Out 2-3 Weeks

Looks like Leon's knee injury is a bit worse than we thought. They're calling it a sprain and say Powe will be out 2-3 weeks. Ray Allen is definitely out for tonight's game. Stephon Marbury will start alongside Rajon Rondo whose most recent ankle sprain was not that severe. Big Baby is back. He's starting... [More]

Powe Out… Ray Might Be Too

Danny Ainge was just on WEEI giving the player updates we've been waiting all day for… and it's not good. Leon Powe is out for tonight. Ray Allen is probably out, but he left the door open.  He did say Ray's arm stiffened overnight. Rondo should be able to go. And Big Baby might be... [More]

With the way injuries are piling up, that might be our starting five tonight against Miami. Here's the latest on the body count: Powe, who banged knees with Chicago's Ben Gordon, will be evaluated in Boston today but doesn't expect to play tonight. Rondo hurt his right ankle in the third quarter but he got... [More]

Miller Time

Brad Miller (21 pts, 14 reb) torched the Celtics' injury riddled and foul prone front line. It was like a lay-up line out there. Salmons, Rose, Miller and Hinrich all got to the hoop at will. How else can you explain the Bulls scoring 127 points? I'm not sure I can watch anymore games until... [More]
